Great Lawyer, Great Results
I recently hired John Baez to represent me in a wrongful criminal charge -- it was the best decision I made. Mr. Baez was a pleasure to work with. He listened to my case, did thorough research and got me great, timely results. He definitely knows what he's doing, and his hard work did not go unnoticed. I can't recommend him highly enough and would hire him again in a heartbeat, if I ever needed to.

Best Legal Representation Ive Had
I have been arrested multiple times for possession charges and misdemeanors that have costed me thousands in fees and court costs. Not to mention precious work hours spent doing community service as part of my sentence. John was reffered to me through a mutual friend and I immediately felt confident in my representation and had no qualms about paying him for it. He was even kind enough to cut me a good deal he dropped the price for me took care of 3 cases at once yes 3!! the results were immediate and better than i ever would have expected. 2 adjudications for manatee county and now im looking a small fraction the penalty i should have recieved. John is always available and easy to talk to he made me feel comfortable and treated me as a friend and was very flexible with me. I would reccomend his services to anyone with legal advice he is extremely knowledgeable and professional. This was not my first good lawyer either i had an excellent one in New York where i lived for 18 years. No one ever gave me respect or treated me professionaly whenever i had gotten into trouble, things were different with John. He explained everything thouroughly and didnt talk down to me like i was some punk kid. Very happy with John Baez as my representation.
